Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Today, I have returned to Germany.
I'm sure that many people, like me, will have been surfing their archives, reliving trips to previous interesting places, as the weather has been so horrible.

When I came upon this photograph of the Elector's Palace, I remembered how astonished I was when I first saw it. Even though I had seen it in a brochure, it was even more beautiful in reality! I know I was lucky with the weather, too.

The Electoral Palace in Trier, Germany, was the residence of the Archbishops and Electors of Trier from the 16th century until the late 18th century. It now houses various offices of the federal government and often hosts classical music concerts.
It had been originally part of the Ancient Roman Imperial Palace that was used by Constantine the Great in the early 4th century. It was used as the Elector's throne room. Some Roman mosaics also survive.

Enjoy your day, Bev :-)
